Your guided DC night tour begins at the U.S. Navy Memorial at 701 Pennsylvania Avenue NW – halfway between the White House and the U.S. Capitol – and will bring you a unique and breathtaking look at our nation’s capital!
Take a trip to the twilight zone with this mesmerizing dusk city highlights tour. As night falls in the capital, all the most famous monuments are lit up, casting a glimmering glow over the city and offering countless photo opportunities. You’ll begin the tour at the U.S. Navy Memorial, before heading through the half-light to major attractions such as the White House, the Korean War Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.
You’ll find each one features special illuminations at night, with regular opportunities to hop off and see the spectacular sculpture work up close. The full shimmering skyline can be seen at the start and endpoint of your tour, which also includes views of the twinkling Tidal Basin and Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Washington, DC, night tours don’t get much more magical than this!

Our tour and guide was amazing! We had so much fun and could not have asked for better service. We had a great time as a family and would love to do the tour again! - Hannah A.
Highly recommend! The tour covered all the main sites with ample photo ops and stops to walk around the monuments. Small size tour and comfy mini van (open top in warmer seasons, glass top in colder ones). Our tour guide, Brittany, was friendly and well-informed. Good price for what you get, too. - JC
This tour was great! So awesome. I’d recommend to anyone visiting DC and was the highlight of our trip. - Natan F.
Nick is the BEST tour guide! We loved it so much we did a day tour and a dusk tour both were awesome!
We took the Nighttime Tour of Monuments. Nick was a fabulous guide. I enjoyed how he shared his knowledge and humor with us. If only he was my Government and History teacher, I would have remembered more. Great tour!
We loved our tour with Dion (Tour Guide) + Curtis (Driver). Our group had the best time with them and many of us said that this is the best tour they ever had, hands down. Dion has genuine excitement and deep, deep knowledge about US history and all the sites. However, it was never boring because he has such an amazing personality and unique storytelling ability. It felt like a re-telling of US History that we have never heard before. Although it was a lot of walking, he kept us entertained and engaged and knew when to get the right photo. He is very talented at what he does and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. Appreciate your hard work and enthusiasm!
We use luxury tour buses that are climate-controlled and offer comfortable and pleasant touring experience, as well as protection from weather elements. Our tours can accommodate all group sizes with a fleet of vehicles ranging from SUVs to premium Motor-coaches. This flexibility allows our private tours to be tailored for couples or groups as big as 50 in a single vehicle. In favor of keeping our public tours more intimate, however, we cap our tours with an average of 30 guests per group.
We do our best to keep large, same-party groups together on the same bus, but please remember that the seating is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you claim your seats – they’re reserved only for you for the duration of the tour.
Convertible buses switch from open-tops to glass-tops between Oct 15 – Mar 15 due to colder temperatures.
Unfortunately, our shuttles are not wheelchair accessible, nor is there storage for baby strollers. If you have a wheelchair, please call us to make special vehicle arrangements for your tour. Some of our tours involve longer walks so if you like, you may stay on board the shuttle, near the landmark, without exiting the shuttle bus every time.
